Moreover, Toonz Entertainment, the content distribution company of Toonz Media Group, located in Ireland, has won a strategic arrangement with Sky UK Limited for its CGI-animated preschool TV series Zoonicorn. Sky has purchased the rights to Zoonicorn (527), season one, for Free TV, Basic TV, Pay TV, and SVOD in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, and British Forces Overseas Bases.
Sky has bought the rights to the series for a three-year term beginning in February 2023, with the series running on the new Sky Kids linear channel and being accessible on demand.
“We are happy to be working with Sky UK. Zoonicorn fills an important need in preschool television, and its uplifting message of hope and resilience connects with children and parents all across the world. Another equally important fact is that “Sky UK will be the ideal new UK home for this much-loved preschool adventure series,” said Bruno Zarka, head of Toonz Media Group’s distribution, syndication, and feature films divisions.
According to a recent release by Zoonicorn, the CGI series will debut on streaming sites globally. The 52/7 series is now available on NBCU’s kids OTT service Peacock (USA). There are also Kidoodle (USA), Astro (Malaysia), Truecorp (Thailand), La Teletuya (Venezuela), and Viu (Venezuela) (Hong Kong).
Toonz Entertainment Expands Horizons

The Zoonicorns occupy young animals’ dreams, taking them on incredible excursions to help them acquire key social-emotional skills. When the dream is ended, the young animal awakens feeling self-assured and equipped with the decision-making abilities need to tackle any problems they face. As their primary message of optimism and perseverance promotes self-belief and positivism, the Zoonicorns skilfully take each dreamer through a flurry of fun-loving experiences. The one crucial reality at the heart of any solution is that they have the ability to address any problem.
The Sky crew also expressed their delight at acquiring the UK exhibition rights to Zoonicorn.
